Importing clothes and textiles to Norway for private use

Clothes and textiles including shipping costs with a value of 640,39 Norwegian kroner (NOK) bought for 100,00 Australian dollar (AUD) plus Visa/MasterCard’s currency exchange premium of 11,21 NOK adds up to a total purchase sum of 651,60 NOK. This last sum is what you pay to the online store at the time of purchase.


The purchase price is above the 350 NOK 350 NOK value added tax and customs exemption limit. You must pay 25,00 % of the purchase price in value added taxes which equals equals 179,06 NOK. Clothes and textiles have a 10,70 % customs tariff resulting in a 69,23 Norwegian kroner fee. Clothes and textiles properly declared and labeled as “Produced in the EU” may be exempt from the customs tariff but few stores properly declare items and you shouldn’t assume you’ll get exempted.
